How Embarrassing

Are you aware that the word ‘Embarrass’ has TWO R’s?

Embarassment‘ kept earning me a red squiggly line.

I timed it. I battled my spell check for exactly 4 minutes and 47 seconds (I even considered adding ‘Embarassment‘ to the Word dictionary) before I relented and looked up the word online.

I was shocked to learn that the word ‘Embarrassment’ has TWO R’s!

As a former SAT English instructor.

I’m embarrassed.
